Cavity Wall Ties
With a history spanning over 47-years, Tapco HomeDry has a vast amount of knowledge and expertise repairing properties with structural damage. If you have noticed cracks in your walls, they may have been caused by a structural problem, which shouldn’t be ignored. Once the structure of a property is compromised, the knock-on effects can be horrendous, both in terms of upheaval and cost.
An extensive investigation by our experienced surveyor, includes an in-depth inspection of the existing wall ties, using a metal detector and Boroscope to determine their condition. and what, if any, wall strengthening and repairs are required.
We also structurally strengthen the damage that has been caused, a process known as “stitching”. This is carried out by raking out mortar joints and installing special Helical bars into the brick course of the damaged areas and bedding them in with a resin bonding solution. This will structurally tie and strengthen the walls to prevent further movement. Our technique follows current building regulations, in terms of the recommended number and position of wall ties and the Helical bars and wall ties we use are stainless steel which won’t corrode.
